We often think farming is all the glorified scenes we see in movies. We wake up with fresh air, a field of flowers, cattle, and chicken all over the place, and all is a good life. But it wasn't. It was a tough life and not even close to what we imagined. And, it is the reason why youth opt-out to stay away from it. Agriculture is unappealing and relatively a burden. Farmers work for long hours and seldom take some time off. That is why I hate when people mock farmers for their financial capacity, not knowing that they are more hardworking than the majority of us.
Dear @juecoree, I agree with you! You always seem to have strong affection and interest in the lower classes of society.
We have a strong tendency to ridicule the economic hardship and poverty of farmers. We seem to easily forget that they work hard every day to produce the most important food.
I think the Philippines can develop into a developed country if the Filipino farmers become richer than they are today.
I think the Filipino farmers should be richer than they are now, so the Filipino food self-sufficiency rate should increase!
Why do you think Filipino politicians are neglecting the poverty of Filipino farmers?
